Several of the get-togethers are tied into the first of three presidential debates Obama and his GOP opponent, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, will take part in next month.
They begin Wednesday, October 3 with a debate focused on domestic policy at the University of Denver in the battleground state of Colorado. It will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Pacific (9 to 10:30 p.m. Eastern) time.
On the day of the debate the Obama for America campaign is hosting phone-banking sessions for local Democrats to call voters in battleground states. Volunteers can sign up for three-hour sessions at the local Democratic Party’s election HQ at 2278 Market Street in the Castro district.
It is hosting a debate salon in conjunction with the Hotel Abri’s Adam Holcomb. The newly renovated hotel is providing refreshments from its restaurant Puccini & Pinetti. Tickets cost $20 and can be bought online here.
The president will be back in the area for a San Francisco fundraiser Monday, October 8 where musician John Legend will be the special guest. LGBT supporters are once again trying to make their presence known by sitting together as a group.
